Vikings (2013): S01E03 – Dispossessed


Introduction

Vikings is a historical drama television series, written and created by Michael Hirst for the television channel History.

The series broadly follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his crew, and in later seasons those of his sons.

The first season premiered on 03 March 2013 in Canada and concluded on 28 April 2013, consisting of nine episodes.

Outline

Ragnar’s warband returns in triumph to Kattegat, where the Earl immediately confiscates the plundered riches except for one piece per man. Ragnar picks the distraught Athelstan and returns home. The monk’s faith and his vow of chastity perplex Ragnar, but he, nonetheless, gathers useful intelligence about the kingdom of Northumbria. Based on this new insight, Earl Haraldson authorises another raid on England. Now accompanied by Lagertha and the Earl’s brother, Knut, Ragnar re-embarks post-haste, leaving Athelstan to mind the farm and the children. As the Vikings set foot on English soil, they are met by the local sheriff and a handful of armsmen, who invite the newly landed “traders” to meet King Aelle. Ragnar agrees, but his other warriors’ distrust incites a battle in which the Northumbrians are slaughtered.
